On April 30th, I was able to process some anger in my men’s circle. I ended up denting my desk in the process, and came up with the affirmation “I fucking matter!”
I wrote the affirmation around the dent so I could remember it.
I added the date because I like to do that kind of thing, especially for relatively permanent things like dents in wood and ink drawn into it.
Then came the deeper level of work. I grounded myself in my body to let the anger have a voice and found it was my body that was feeling angry at being cooped up in front of the fucking computer all the time. I need to go outside and play!
So I added that to the message. Now it is a reminder, affirmation, and stretch all at the same time.
